Tea & Sugar Train

The “Tea and Sugar Train Team” is making interactive exhibits for the historical artifact “Tea and Sugar Train” located at Port Adelaide, South Australia. The Tea and Sugar Train was literally a shopping center on wheels that included a bank, a provision car, a butcher shop, and a relay car for transporting city luxuries to isolated areas.

The goal of this project is to help the Australian National Railway Museum make the Tea and Sugar Train the centerpiece of a new exhibit on the history of life in the Outback by bringing the old train to life using interactive technologies.

Our team is pioneering CMU’s cooperation with University of South Australia. Their role will mainly be doing historical research and providing the content whereas ETC will be focusing on the technical backbone of the whole project.
